Eighty-seven-year-old Porter Cross has a weekly routine. On Mondays, he gets his exercise by walking to the corner store to purchase lottery tickets. Unfortunately, due to the state of society and the youth of Chicago, his trip earlier this week was far from routine. He was mugged by three hooligans on the way home, reports the Chicago Tribune.
Witnesses say that the World War II veteran was mugged from behind by Michael Protho, 17, Rashon E. Williams, 20, and a 15-year-old minor. The trio took off with Cross' wallet, which contained his social security card, identification, and money.
